Kelowna's Kelsey Serwa won a silver medal from a World Cup Ski Cross event in Megeve, France.
The race was run on Wednesday.
Serwa, who had the outside left starting gate, was squeezed off the course on the second jump and spent the rest of the race catching up to the top three racers.
She made a move near the bottom of the course, passed two French skiers and nearly caught Germany's Anna Woerner at the finish line.
Serwa drafted behind Woerner near the finish line but was unable to pass her at the line.
"I felt it was good. I was happy with the track conditions and how I skied. There was a lot of action out there today and it was a good track," says Serwa.
"At this time yesterday we didn't know if we would get a race off. It was so nice for the weather to clear off. The volunteers did a great job making the track runable."
Serwa currently sits second in the World Cup standings with 56 points, 16 in back of overall leader Fanny Smith of Switzerland.
Next up for the ladies is a pair of races February 2 and 3 in Grasgehren, Germany.
